It's Really Me

On a given day
I am on a roll
everything seems to be working for me
I look at a person and he is already smiling

I ask help from a colleague
and it's immediately given
all experiences pleasant
whether at work, the coffee shop
at the cinema or social scene

Yet on other days
I feel people ignoring me
are unfriendly & unhelpful
I am diffident to even seek help...

How can it be
that the same people behave
differently on different days
how can they be rude
and friendly to the same 'me'

with a little pondering
observation & introspection
I can now see
that it's all about me
and what I am feeling

If I am feeling down
nonenthused & exhausted
these get reflected
on my face & body-
frowning face, drooping shoulders
moving away, withdrawing..

No wonder then
they pick up the signals
and return to me
the same things I projected

So it's all about me
what I am thinking & feeling
it's not them
it's really me!


  1. You are right about that and you have told it all so well.

  2. I guess, each day brings a new story and emotions. You brought it out well.

  3. Thank you Saru for your appreciation & feedback.

  4. You are correct. It sure is about our own moods that somehow also reflect in our behaviour and we try to see similar things in others.

  5. Thank you Jyotsna for reading & sharing your thoughts!
